I can be sure it has been a few years ago but you probly right in that

The only other idea I know of is to run the Real Time Kernel on those
Blades.  Then you need the kernel tools installed.  Pin down the
specific intterupt that the LUN resides on and blacklist it for that
specific scsi interface.  I dont that that either will get you a per lun
but they run on interrupts so they can be made to persistanly be
disabled.  cat /proc/interrupts will show it should but I must say i
have never disable a LUN through it only NIC devices and moving them
around to other CPUs.

You can use Nates idea also. It will work.  Put you a script in rc.d to
make it persistant.  I have a feeling you will need it in boot order
fashion though.
